Designing A Comprehensive Anti-Corruption Strategy For The Private Sector, V-Tsien Gaius Fan 2014 Northeastern University

Designing A Comprehensive Anti-Corruption Strategy For The Private Sector, V-Tsien Gaius Fan

Criminology and Justice Policy Dissertations

I examine the possibility of designing a comprehensive anti-corruption counterstrategy for the private sector. The first prong of my study determines the relationships between the environment, management, and business controls in their effect on combating corruption. Quantitative analysis of data from the World Bank's Enterprise Surveys was performed in order to frame a proper context in which measures against corruption can be considered. These relationships were then considered in the subcontext of region, industry, and company size to determine variation. Results show that business controls are generally resilient to the effects of management. Management effects are resilient to environmental ...

When Does A Platform Create Value By Limiting Choice?, Ramon Casadesus-Masanell, Hanna Halaburda 2014 SelectedWorks

When Does A Platform Create Value By Limiting Choice?, Ramon Casadesus-Masanell, Hanna Halaburda

Hanna Halaburda

We present a theory for why it might be rational for a platform to limit the number of applications available on it. Our model is based on the observation that even if users prefer application variety, applications often also exhibit direct network effects. When there are direct network effects, users prefer to consume the same applications to benefit from consumption complementarities. We show that the combination of preference for variety and consumption complementarities gives rise to (i) a commons problem (to better satisfy their individual preference for variety, users have an incentive to consume more applications than the number that ...


Retaliating Against Customer Interpersonal Injustice In A Singaporean Context: Moderating Roles Of Self-Efficacy And Social Support, Violet Ho, Naina Gupta 2014 University of Richmond

Retaliating Against Customer Interpersonal Injustice In A Singaporean Context: Moderating Roles Of Self-Efficacy And Social Support, Violet Ho, Naina Gupta

Management Faculty Publications

Few studies have examined the relationship between customer injustice and employees' retaliatory counterproductive behaviors toward customers, and those that have done so have been conducted in a Western setting. We extend these studies by examining the relationship in a Singaporean context where retaliatory behaviors by employees might be culturally constrained. While the previously established positive relationship between customer injustice and counterproductive behaviors was not replicated using peer-reported data from employees across two hotels in Singapore, we found that individuals' self-efficacy and perceived social support moderated it. Specifically, the injustice-to-counterproductive behaviors relationship was positive for individuals with high self-efficacy, and for ...

Employee Voice And Recipients' Appraisals/Reactions: The Effects Of Speech Style, Voice Type, And Voicer Status, Yongsuhk Jung 2014 Western University

Employee Voice And Recipients' Appraisals/Reactions: The Effects Of Speech Style, Voice Type, And Voicer Status, Yongsuhk Jung

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The purpose of this research was to investigate the consequences of employee voice (i.e., the expression of information, ideas, or concerns for organizational development), primarily focusing on voice assertiveness (i.e., the extent of voicing individuals’ assertive expressions) and its influences on perceptual appraisals and reactions of voice recipients. Based on a literature review, I proposed a process model that described the influential mechanisms of voice assertiveness. I also defined moderating conditions that may guide the nature of the influence processes, such as voice type (promotive voice vs. prohibitive voice), voicer status (subordinate vs. peer), and recipient core self-evaluations ...

The Magic Of (A)Ffective Management, Ryan Weir

Charleston Library Conference

(A)ffective management is a people-first approach to managing employees. After all, employees and supervisors are people first. No matter how hard any individual may try, inevitably the stress and strain of life outside of work can and will bleed through into the work environment. The (A)ffective and effective manager understands this and incorporates this understanding into how he/she interacts with superiors and subordinates in the work environment on a daily basis. This article offers strategies on how to be an (A)ffective manager.

Assessing Customer Service In Airports – Models From The Uae, Aman Gupta, Mohammed Arif, Phillip A. Richardson

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Customer service at airports has become a key priority for airport operators given the high degree of competitions. This paper uses an airport customer service model to analyze three examples from the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Passenger interviews, statistical information, customer feedback and other forms of information have been utilized to learn more about the customer view on the quality of service offered at these three airports. Detailed qualitative analysis of these case studies has highlighted some key issues in the area of customer service and identifies some opportunities for improvement.

Lean Construction, Jonathan Howell 2014 Bond University

Lean Construction, Jonathan Howell

Public Infrastructure Bulletin

Traditional project delivery and procurement methodology has evolved into an inherently inefficient and adversarial process. Lean construction provides an approach to modern construction that significantly improves collaboration, innovation, delivery, control and quality within projects. Lean construction is based on fundamentals such as maximum value generation, flows of activities, pull demand systems and perfection in execution at every level of the project. For this reason identification of the real value of lean construction within the construction industry is required.

An analysis of traditional methods has revealed significant deficiencies in current delivery methods and efficiency standards. This has subsequently illuminated the key ...

Standardising And Optimising The Project Development Lifecycle: Standardisation Of Project Development Lifecycle Naming Conventions, Richard Wittig

Public Infrastructure Bulletin

The project development phases in the Australian coal mining and processing industry are similar to those used in front end loading for oil and gas development in stages and maturity; however there is no common naming convention for the project development phases in the Australian coal sector. This is causing pricing and estimate accuracy confusion between government agencies, mine developers, engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) providers as well as vendors and industry bodies.

Project Finance: Transactional Evidence From Australia, Michael Regan 2014 Bond University

Project Finance: Transactional Evidence From Australia, Michael Regan

Public Infrastructure Bulletin

The international project finance market is experiencing a period of significant change. The new Basel III capital adequacy rules will make it harder for banks to provide long-term project finance, and alternative sources of finance such as the shadow banking sector, fund managers, sovereign wealth funds, and institutional investors will take time to bridge the financing gap. In the meantime, it is difficult to source project finance for tenors beyond seven years, risk premiums are higher, and finance is difficult to source. Recent innovations in the form of the European Investment Bank’s Project Bond Initiative, and the ASEAN Infrastructure ...

The Business Of Beds: An Exploration Of Hotel And Hostel Business Strategy, Robert B. Bunda

Honors Scholar Theses

At their cores, hotels and hostels are similar in that they provide a place for travelers to stay. Despite this core similarity, the structures of the two industries are radically different. The hotel industry began in the Middle Ages and has given rise to massive multinational companies, many managing more than four thousand hotels. In stark contrast, the hostel industry began in 1909 and is mostly comprised of independently owned and operated guesthouses, with the largest global chain comprising of less than twenty properties. This study first defines the hotel and hostel industries and examines the different experiences they offer ...
